    The Urban Evolution of North County: 

    Challenges and Opportunities

    In case you haven't visited lately, the San Diego North County cities of Carlsbad, Escondido, Oceanside, San Marcos, and Vista have become a hub of urban activity. Linked by the SPRINTER light rail line with 15 stations, State Route 78, and the Coaster commuter rail line, these cities have banded together to promote the economic prosperity of the sub-region. During the past thirty years, this part of North County has evolved from a mostly rural and suburban area to one with multiple urban nodes, robust employment centers, institutions of higher education like Cal State San Marcos and Palomar College, and a variety of types of homes to meet the needs of a diverse population. 

    In June, C-3 invites North County leaders to discuss changes that are making this area a hub for innovation and the challenges and opportunities to house new residents and develop new kinds of communities. What can the San Diego region learn from these North County cities? 

    Join us June 28 to find out!
